Meta announced that its Meta AI chatbot, powered by the company’s most advanced Llama 3 large language model (LLM), is coming to India in English, as users can access it through WhatsApp, Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, and

Meta suggested ways that people could use the AI chatbot, such as accessing it through a WhatsApp group chat to find vegan restaurants for the gang, or finding places to stop at during a road trip.

Meanwhile, those scrolling through Facebook can use the Meta AI chatbot in order to get more context from posts. There is also a web option for users.

“Cramming for a test? Ask Meta AI on the web to create you a multiple choice test. Moving into your first apartment? Ask Meta AI to “imagine” the aesthetic you want so that you can create a mood board of AI-generated images for inspiration on your furniture shopping,” said the company in its press release.

Meta further suggested that people generate images and animate them by accessing its text-to-image generation technologies through the Meta AI chatbot.

The release of Meta AI comes days after Google launched the Gemini chatbot app for India.

While AI image generation technologies are now accessible to most users with smartphones, there are still questions about racial biases in the models powering these features, and concerns about how much copyrighted content was scraped to make them.
